The Los Alamos High School Topper Boys Basketball Team winning streak came to an end Saturday evening as they traveled to Española to play the Sundevils in Edward Medina Gymnasium.

Going into the game, the Toppers had won the three previous games. However, the Sundevils overpowered the Toppers and won the contest 62-38.

The Sundevils aggressive and physical game was more than the Toppers could handle.

The Toppers next game is 7 p.m. Tuesday against the St. Mikes Horseman in Santa Fe.
